Diversity

Here at LXRA, we know that our strength and success lies in the diversity of our people.

For us, 'diversity' means all the ways in which employees differ, and the valuable contribution that these differences bring to our work.

Our broad diversity program enables us to attract, recruit, retain and develop a diverse workforce; fostering greater innovation, greater customer connection, increased wellbeing and satisfaction, and the ability to attract and retain talented people during times of economic change. 

LXRA is an equal opportunity employer and welcomes applicants from a diverse range of backgrounds. We strongly encourage applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and offer reasonable adjustments for applicants with disabilities on request.
